Add a touch of whimsy to your playing with this adorable mute that will put a smile on anyone's face! The Moustro mute is fully functional as well as fully adorable and works just like a two-hole tourte mute, so you can keep it on your instrument when not in use. Equally popular with beginners, teachers, and professionals. Fairly stiff to start, softens over time.

What Should I Look For in a Mute?
All string players should have at least one mute, and there are three important factors to consider. First and foremost, ease of use. How quickly can the mute be put in place or removed? How important is this to you? Orchestral players sometimes only have one measure to install or remove a mute. Secondly, sound quality. The goal of the mute is to lower the volume only, not dampen the good quality of your instrument. Regarding overall sound quality, the degree to which a mute "rattles" when not in use but still on the strings between the bridge and tailpiece is important as well. Third is aesthetics. Truth be told, many players consider the importance of overall look and feel, trying a variety of mutes to find out what works and looks best on their instrument. Fortunately, mutes are not too expensive, so this is a relatively low cost endeavor.

A Really Nice Mute

When I first got this mute I was really excited and nervous too because this particular mute looked like it wouldn't sound good on my violin. I was happy and surprised to see that it actually worked quite well. It sounded amazing! My only problem with this mute is that it's kind of hard to put on which results in the mouse's face being rubbed off. It ended up OK because I turned it into a little pirate, but I'm sad that the cute face was rubbed off. Other than that, I highly recommend!

CUTE YET FUNCTIONAL

I bought one of these mutes expecting it to be just a decoration on my instrument. It turned out to be much more! This mute is so cute, yet it works better than my "professional" mute! The mute doesn't fit completely over the strings, but I find that this actually helps with the muted sound. Perfect for anyone who has a whimsical personality!! LOVE IT!!!!!
